Save On Printer Ink With PretonSaver Home. Free License Keys

PretonSaver Home is an easy-to-use application that will optimizes printer ink and toner consumption without compromising on quality. The program achieves this by identifying and deleting pixels that are not necessary to maintain a good quality level of printing, thus dramatically reducing toner and ink usage. Preton claims that their software can save as much as 70% on your printing costs.

You run the program and tell it how much saving you want to make - anywhere from 0% to 70%. After that, just print your pages and the program does the saving for you. You'll have to balance between savings and print quality. The sweet spot is at 35% where you get the best savings-quality tradeoff. For images the developers recommend setting the slider at around 10%. For things like school projects, 50% should work fine. For printing web pages, emails and draft documents, move the slider all the way up to 70%.

You can also fine-tune the settings to use different quality factors for text, graphics and images. With PretonSaver Home you can easily define saving levels for specific print jobs, applications, or elements (e.g. text, graphics, or images). You can also automatically omit graphics or images for specific documents, in order to save ink.

PretonSaver Home has a price tag of $39.99, but for a limited time Preton Ltd is giving away free license keys for 1 year. Visit the promotional page and click on the “Get a FREE License!” button. Fill the form that opens and submit. The license key will be sent to your email inbox.

  1. This is absolutely great! I only wish I knew this when I was at university the amount of ink I used to get through! Thanks for sharing.

  2. We need a license key that is forever not just 1 year. That doesn't help anyone.

  3. Interesting concept, and one with merit for sure, though the problem for me is that I have my inkjet printer connected to my home media server, with about 3 PC's running off that. The only way this program could offer me anything would be to install it on all of my PCs, rather than one central install onto the server.

  4. Very useful. Though I've found another one, http://www.inksaver.com/, which seems to have better 30% reduction setting quality, so I'll use that.

    the sweet spot is not 35%, with either programs. (after testing both theirprintout shetets). it's really 20%, but 30% is still excellent with inksaver, bit noticeable on images but graphics and text it's virtually the same. with preton, 35% (at least) is too visibly different.

How to Record CPU and Memory Usage Over Time in Windows?

Whenever the computer is lagging or some application is taking too long to respond, we usually fire up task manager and look under the Performance tab or under Processes to check on processor utilization or the amount of free memory available. The task manager is ideal for real-time analysis of CPU and memory utilization. It even displays a short history of CPU utilization in the form of a graph. You get a small time-window, about 30 seconds or so, depending on how large the viewing area is.

How to Schedule Changes to Your Facebook Page Cover Photo

Facebook’s current layout, the so called Timeline, features a prominent, large cover photo that some people are using in a lot of different creative ways. Timeline is also available for Facebook Pages that people can use to promote their website or business or event. Although you can change the cover photo as often as you like, it’s meant to be static – something which you design and leave it for at least a few weeks or months like a redesigned website. However, there are times when you may want to change the cover photo frequently and periodically to match event dates or some special promotion that you are running or plan to run. So, here is how you can do that.
